Happy Sunday to all.
Dear Wife has been running a low-grade fever for about the last week. Not sure what, if anything, it indicates. It does wear her down and contributes something to her feeling lousy. That has been, sadly, an all-too-frequent condition for many years and is wearing her down. Leaves us both feeling helpless and sad. I know that the Lord is aware of all of this, but sometimes it gets to be wearying.
This is a tough week coming up. Our older daughter, technically my step-daughter, has a birthday this week. Our "baby" will turn 32 on Thursday. We have not had any contact with her whatsoever for going on two years. To say we are estranged is about right. Phone calls are not answered, e-mails are ignored, even birthday and Christmas cards are ignored. I will, as I did last year, send her a birthday card asking that, at the very least, she call her mother. But I expect no response. They live more than 500 miles from here, but they live only about a mile from her in-laws, and neither one will talk to them either. Son-in-law has not "unfriended' me on the social media, but doesn't respond to my communication attempts either. Makes things tough.
